What to Wear With Yellow

Flipping through a magazine from 1960 this morning, I came across an article about what to wear with what, and there was yellow yet again!  In case you're thinking, "#IWouldWearYellow, but I have nothing to go with it," here are loads of ideas for you, my dears.

Left:  Yellow silk coat worn over a pale blue dress, accessorized with darker blue and green jewelry and green shoes. 
Right:  Bright yellow dress worn with orange-y red accessories.

Left:  Pineapple yellow suit worn with a yellow polka dotted white blouse and accessorized with a rattan handbag, gold jewelry and nude shoes.
Right:  Pineapple yellow dress worn with a pop of green hat, jade jewelry and beige shoes.

Left:  Pastel yellow silk dress worn with a polka dotted yellow hat, gold jewelry and pale yellow shoes.
Right:  Pastel yellow dress worn with a deeper orange-y yellow coat, pale yellow shoes and a pop of blue and white jewelry.

What would you wear with yellow?

I love the red necklace, heels and hat with the yellow dress. These outfits fit in well with the current rage for color blocking!

I love the red shoes with it. I would have never thought to put red shoes with a yellow dress. I have however been eyeing a pair of yellow shoes to wear with a turqois sheath...

Love these color combinations. I would usually think of green or orange with yellow, really like the red. Although I would never wear that combination only because it remind me of my high school colors, weird how things like that stick with a person.

I like wearing yellow. I can only get away with wearing a citron yellow because it has blue in it and works with my skin tone. I like yellow with gray, navy, teal or purple. And I love your collection of photos. Are they all old mag. You've collected?

Yellow pops when you wear black with it - as a shell top or skirt. If that's a little too much, you can always wear black heels and scarf.

It's such a cheerful color, howver you wear it.

Those are great pictures from the early 'sixties. Try navy with yellow, too. One of my favourite outfits was a yellow and white polka dot blouse with a navy A-line skirt (gathers front and back on either side of an inverted pleat), yellow patent leather belt, navy, yellow and white bangles, a navy patent leather handbag and matching navy Ferragamo flats in the late 'sixties. I always matched my belts to my tops because I'm short-waisted. Love your blog!
